What is Course Linking?
Course linking (or “context linking”) is the process of adding the LTI tool (also “external tool”, “LTI link”, or “Logos link”) to a specific class participating in Logos Inclusive Access. Your institution has provided Logos a list of courses corresponding to specific terms. Course linking is the process used to link your Learning Management System (LMS) to Logos' system to ensure the correct content is being delivered for the correct course during the correct term.
*Every course needs to be linked even if you duplicate an existing course or use a template. If linking is not completed, students will not receive their required content.
Steps to Link a Course in Canvas
1) Add the Logos Link to Your Course Navigation Menu
To begin the process, navigate to the course you want to add the Logos LTI link to.
Click Settings > Navigation > drag Logos Course Materials (may have a different name) to a prominent location in the navigation menu > click Save.
2) Link the Course (i.e. Context)
Click the Logos link (may have a different name) in the left navigation menu.
Once the Logos link is clicked for the first time, you will be prompted to link the context for the course. Use the two drop-down menus (Term and Course) to connect to the correct course content.
Click Term from the menu and select the term you want to link (e.g., “Spring A 2024” or “Fall B 2024”).
Next, click Course then select your course (e.g., THEO2001).
Confirm you have selected the correct term and course and then click Link Context.
If this is your first time using the LTI link, you will be prompted to create a Logos account or sign in to your existing Logos account. For more information see the article- Linking Your Account.
Next, you will be directed to app.logos.com with the library panel open and filtered to the textbooks for your class.
If you see the correct list of textbooks, your course has been linked effectively.
